National Curriculum Links
There are many cross curricular links to be found in the Young Leaders Award; the Key Stage Two award has been written and mapped out against the learning outcomes for Citizenship, Personal, Social and Health Education and some aspects of Religious Education. The table below provides more details on this.
Through the Young Leaders Award, the children learn more about themselves as growing and changing individuals with their own experience and ideas, and as members of their communities. Through Archie’s various challenges, they are encouraged to become more mature, independent and self-confident, as well as learning about the wider world and the many communities within it. They will explore a number of people of faith who have made a significant difference in the world through their faith and leadership and reflect on what it means to be a good leader. They will identify leadership skills that they already show and those they would like to grow in, in turn encouraging their own sense of personal identity and setting themselves goals. They will develop their own sense of social justice and moral responsibility as they explore the community action projects they will be involved in and begin to understand that their own choices and behaviour can affect local, national and global issues. Inspired by those who have gone before them, the children will begin to put their beliefs, values and skills into action through the active citizenship aspect of the award. They will learn to take part more fully in school and community activities through Archie’s various challenges. As a result, we hope that they will grow in confidence and be able to take more responsibility individually and as a group.
